MARK Webster is confident he has the ability to join the world's best darts players again next year.

The Denbigh dartist missed out on a spot in the 2019 William Hill World Darts Championship when he was beaten in the final qualifier on Monday.

With only three qualification spots left up for grabs, Webster was beaten 6-1 versus Madars Razma.

Speaking yesterday morning, Webster admitted: "It was never going to happen for me yesterday.

"I have had that many things go wrong this year, but it's my own fault."

Failure to qualify on Monday means that former Lakeside champion Webster misses out on his first world championship since 2006.

Stephen Burton, Adam Hunt and Aden Kirk were the three players who progressed from the PDC tour card holders' qualifier in Milton Keynes.

"Obviously, I have come through the back end of the dartitis, but I haven't been confident this year," he added.

"I still think I have got the ability.

"I have got to get the results, but I just haven't had them this year.

"Next year I have got to prioritise getting into the world championship and retaining my card.

"I have played okay at the back end of this year, but I just left myself too much to do."

Webster confirmed he will be at London's Alexandra Palace for next month's world championship as part of the Sky Sports commentary team.

"I'm there for the majority of the first round," he added.

Peter Martin became the latest winner of the Geraint 'Fluffy' Williams Memorial Shield last weekend, as the Denbigh darting community paid their respects to the missed Llandyrnog man.

A total of 26 players entered the evening competition, travelling from Corwen, Holywell and other areas to try and become the fourth winner of the charity-based competition.

It's been a tough 10 months for the Denbigh man who has been recovering from a broken leg, but Martin is returning back to his best on the oche and he took the title with a 3-0 final win over Paul Jones.
